Spring is bound to start at some point. And when it does, it will bring with it everything that we like. And your home will not only get a spring clean, but a restyle, too: from retro to futuristic, in crazy combinations – purism is out. Futuristic design borrows from the ’50s, matches perfectly with the ’70s’ eagerness to try new things and contrasts wonderfully with beautiful antiques. The preferred materials are terrazzo, cement, paper and reduced designs made of metal. The trendiest designs hail from Scandinavia, Benelux and Italy. An especially good match for strong spring shades: pastel colours, particularly rose quartz and serenity (pale blue). When you go out, make sure you’re equipped with Mediterranean simplicity: string shopping bag, espadrilles and summer hat. Which means you can safely say goodbye to that wall unit and Persian rug. They’ll make room for light, air and space.
